Super Bowl XLVIII (2014) kicks off at chilly MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 6:25 p.m. ET. New York will serve as co-host for the first outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl.  This is also Ground Hog day... I wouldn't look for my shadow -- too cold there.    And by the way, Florida is to be 82 that same day.   Don't try to get  on any bridges... just saying.    I'm going to admit, I am a total Manning fan.  The whole Manning family is in all southerner's hearts.       Peyton did a great job at Tennessee, my alma mater.

Wanted: Croc handlers, no experience necessary      Here’s an excellent part-time job that pays $25 an hour and offers the chance to work outdoors. The only catch is you have to be willing to handle live crocodiles. -- FWC nuisance alligator program

   The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is seeking agents to handle nuisance crocodile complaints. Experience is preferred but not necessary.

   The number of American   crocodiles in South Florida — their only habitat in the United States — has increased steadily, meaning they are now showing up in canals, yards and golf courses from the Florida Keys to Palm Beach County.

   The winning candidate will work in Miami-Dade County and the Upper Keys, where the workload has increased. The job involves capturing and relocating crocodiles when necessary. But it also requires the skills of a diplomat, someone who can deal with people who are displeased to learn they live in crocodile habitat and the crocodile may get to stay.

   The agency will provide training, largely by letting the new agent work with an experienced one before handling cases solo.

Empty Seat
A young man was very excited because he just won a ticket to the Super Bowl. His excitement lessened as he realized his seat was in the back of the stadium. As he searched the rows ahead of him for a better seat, he found an empty one right next to the field.
He approached the man sitting next to the empty seat and asked if it was taken.
The man replied, "No."
Amazed the young man asked, "How could someone pass up a seat like this?"
The older gentleman responded, "That's my wife's seat. We've been to every Super Bowl together since the day we were married but she has passed away."
"Oh, how sad," the man said. "I'm sorry to hear that, but couldn't you find a friend or relative to come with you?"
"No," the man said, "They're all at the funeral."

Listen Mister,
I hate to tell you this, but you know the way you shout when there's a football match on tv?

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Billy Graham's Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
